Summary: I purchased this item and found that it was exactly as promised except for one issue that caused me to return the unit. It did have a descent sound and the sub is very good. However, the big problem with this unit is the inability to turn the volume down very low. I spent $75.00 to return it because it just can't be turned down to a low level. In order to control the volume to a low level you must be able to adjust the output of your actual TV.
Summary: First, the sound from this system is great. I cannot deny that. But my new TV (a Panasonic) will not allow me to turn off the TV's volume unless I am using a compatible (i.e., a Panasonic) sound system. That stinks, but we have found ways to work around that. Annoying, but workable. Here is the real kicker. The bass from the subwoofer is awesome....but we have a different interference problem with the wireless subwoofer than the one you will read about in other reviews.
Great Sound, but Riddled with Glitches and Oversights

Summary: I was in the market for a soundbar for the game room in the new home I'm purchasing. After researching all the reviews, I decided to go with the SB 16. First things first: The sound is amazing. The faux surround really is impressive and the shape of the room doesn't matter. The sub has adjustable crossover and a phase switch, so you can find that perfect sweet spot for your room. $600 sounds steep, but you are getting a lot for your money.
